NTSC/4:3/TRT 43:00/B&W and Color/2003
This American Gothic melodrama explores one event, the unfolding of a love triangle during the robbery of a drug store in a small Midwestern town, from three points of view. Rashomon-like in its construction, Starkweather allows each of its three characters to present his/her version of the crime of passion that brings the robbery to its fatal conclusion. The film was created to take advantage of the interactive and random-play abilities of the DVD format, presenting different motivations and secrets, and thus varied individual experiences of the central narrative, with multiple viewings.
The film is not currently available for viewing online in its entirety. To see it, please send a request to prof. Morrow.
